It remains to be seen how the Bears will perform on the field, but they will look good doing it.
ESPN’s Paul Lukas released his 2013 power rankings of NFL uniforms, and the Bears topped the list.
Lukas said, “Moving the TV numbers from the sleeves to the shoulders last season did no great harm to what is still the cream of the NFL crop. No other team looks as consistently sharp week after week, no matter if they’re playing at home or on the road. Key element: the striped socks, which tie the whole look together. Other NFL teams could learn from that.”
Chicago’s teams are well represented in the rankings in other sports, too.The Cubs placed second in baseball (behind the Cardinals, though), while the White Sox were No. 15. The Bulls rank 10th in the NBA.
NHL uniforms were not ranked, but one would think the Blackhawks’
classic Indian-head sweater would rank near the top.
